Syracuse softball improves to 9-3 after decimating and overwhelming Delaware State
9-0. This was a huge win especially for an offense desperately looking for a way to get hot.
All Syracuse needed was a six run second inning and a three run fourth to put away the Hornets in a tidy one hour game.
Paris Woods started the onslaught with a bunt single to score an unearned run. After the ‘Cuse continued to get runners aboard, Tessa Galipeau mashed a grand slam to right field to put S.U. up 5-0.
Kelly Breen tacked on a solo shot to cap a six run inning. After a pair of run scoring singles by Jasso and Casares-Maher in the fourth, the game was well on its way to ending early.
Carli Campbell went 3-3 with two runs scored out of the leadoff spot while Jasso and Casares-Maher combined to go 3-6 in the middle of the order.
Summer Clark only threw 35 pitches in four easy innings making her possibly available to start tomorrow’s game against Auburn. The freshman improved her record to 6-0 after she only gave up one hit and struck out three. Ariana Adams sealed the deal with an inning of relief.
Doepking’s only lineup change was starting Angie Ramos at third instead of a struggling Rebecca Clyde. Hitting seventh, Ramos went 0-3 with a strikeout.
Next up for the ‘Cuse is one last non-conference tune-up against Auburn before ACC play commences. The Tigers are 11-1 with the only loss coming against number three UCLA.
First pitch is scheduled for 12:30 tomorrow.
